The Dead (2011)

Now available free on Prime.

An American military fellow and an African soldier buddy up for a road trip through zombie outbreak afflicted northern Africa. Lots of shooty shoot, choppy chop, gratuitous pulping, and the occasional bitey bite and jump scare. The actors are B listers of whom I've never before seen that I recall but they do a decent job.

It's not a great movie and I'm still waiting to see if there is a hidden societal commentary a la George Romero zombie flicks. There's no comic relief a la Sean, Zombieland, or dark irony a la Romero. But of course, in a real zombie outbreak, there won't be much comic relief for people on the run. So maybe that's right.

It's a solid B movie. So if you're into the genre, you should probably watch this one at least once.
